Good compensation with lots of knowledge to be gained
Senior Health Physics Technician (Former Employee) – Columbia, MD – November 13, 2013
I fully enjoyed working for this company, however, the sporadic nature of the work turned me away from this type of work. Benefits were not offered due to being a temporary worker based on contract availability. Pay scale was very comparable within the radiation field, and per diem/mileage was offered if greater than 50 miles from your home. Management was willing to answer questions if unsure of job specifics.

Tidewater was a good company to work for but, they had a strict safety policy. Management was good to work for. Didn't see co workers a lot. The hardest part was not knowing how many trips I would have.
Normal work day could be less stressful and more fun
Physical Therapy Technician (Former Employee) – Ocean View, DE – September 25, 2014
A typical day would start around 6:30-7:00 and I would help start bring people back get them on heat if they needed it get their equipment all together look over their folder start them on their exercises make sure they are doing them properly once my patients were doing Id let the therapist now and get their ice ready afterwards. normally I would have about three to four patients at a time. What I learned was to multitask move and work quickly. The management and co-workers were all very nice. The hardest part of the job I would have to say is being on your feet for such a very long period of time and if someone new started I would sometimes have to train them and make sure they are doing everything right while caring and keeping an eye on my patients. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the older patients and them having me laugh !!!
All the goodies that the patients would bring in and the laughs you would get from listening to them
Short breaks, not paid enough for everything you have to do (sorry)
